Who Should Consider A Murrells Inlet Fishing Charter?

This is the beauty of the area, regardless of skill level or desired fish to target Murrells Inlet is a great starting point that covers all of these bases.

In the backcountry side, Winyah Bay, you will find calm protected waters that can make for a family-friendly fishing day without the long boat ride into deeper waters. At the exact same time, this backcountry estuary system is also geared towards those highly skilled inshore anglers looking to sight-fish big redfish, black drum, and several other local species – including tarpon in the mid summer through the start of fall.

For those looking for offshore quality fishing, it exists within sight of the coastline – the nearshore fishery. This nearshore fishery is dotted with reefs and wrecks that hold species like kingfish, cobia, big flounder, Spanish mackerel, sharks, and more. The best part is this is also a trip where those with different skill levels or desired species to target each have the opportunity to enjoy a day of offshore quality fishing.

With Harvest Moon, our charters for Murrells Inlet guests start in the backcountry regardless of trip type, which can give you the opportunity to try your hand at both (weather, season, and time permitting). If you’re wondering why you would want to launch out of the backside of Murrells Inlet (closer to Georgetown, about 20 mins drive) for a day of fishing, I will quote the Captain, “Georgetown offers expansive, uncrowded waters with many options that provide flexibility, peace, and quiet for your trip.”
